If you built the jet car then you would clearly understand that even mentioning of tires is not needed. Who cares if it's plastic tires, snow skis, street tires, etc... Tires are not what transfers jet engine power onto pavement to create grip

I wish they would've covered the jet-powered Ford Focus station wagon I built in the late 90's/early naughts. We were able to lay down 228mph on street radials by Toyo Tires. Look up 'Focus This! Jet dragster' on YouTube.
Description: Very rarely do you see four jet-powered cars racing at the same time. Skip to 2:24 if you want to avoid the lengthy intro and go straight to the 5 seconds of action.

Note: This track in Malmö Sweden is just 1/8 (201 meters long).

Description: A MINI Cooper S powered by its turbocharged inline-four and a jet helicopter engine should be powerful to beat a Nissan GT-R in a drag race, right? GT-R fan boys already know the answer to that questi...

@Tyler, Im pretty sure Clarkson likes the GTR, so me disliking it is an original opinion

Alex Vasquez Aug 11, 2012

Christian De Prisco Aug 11, 2012

260 mph vs. 1500 mph is so epic!
Bruno Nappa Aug 11, 2012
He should have put the spoiler down, it creates to much downforce and drag.
